Excellent place to stay. Staff all very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast served in the Beefeater adjacent to the hotel. Good selection of juices,cereals,etc. Cooked breakfast always fresh and cooked to order. We invited the family to join us for Sunday lunch which they all thoroughly enjoyed. Good food served in a relaxed and friendly manner.

Very good stay with excellent rooms. The facilities were as expected for budget hotel with competitive prices. The position was easy to find. Having the restaurant next door is always useful. We will certainly book at another Premier Inn on our travels

We had never visited Colchester before, and for our two-night stay wanted somewhere close to the main railway station. Our booking online was easy, although I was puzzled to get an email suggesting that we checked in online to 'save time'. (Could not understand what the saving might be, so ignored the invitation.) 'Live' checking-in was simple, efficient, informative and...

Room clean and comfortable, plenty of parking. Informative staff. First room i've stayed in with enough plug sockets for phone and tablet chargers. Good internet connection. Despite being on a main road the room was very quiet.

Although this is a slightly older Premier Inn (a key for the door rather than a swipe card - old skool) we had a good stay (2 nights), all the staff we came across were welcoming, friendly and helpful. Parking is free. The room was typical standard premier inn, comfy bed, decent tv, good shower, staff on hand if you...

Very helpful welcome which I always get in Premier Inn. Well placed for Colchester and the surrounding area and the town centre is a short walk away. We didn't eat in the restaurant but did have breakfast which for the cooked breakfast was made to order which makes a nice change from the buffet style. Staff at the hotel very...

We did not stay in the hotel but had dinner at the Beefeater restaurant. I was impressed by the allergen menu. It was nice to see that every component of each dish was listed out. I was able to see whether I could have the fish, but say, without a side. I had the ribs with coleslaw and fries. V...
